RUSSIAN TROOPS MOVE CLOSER TO UKRAINE BORDER : NATO CHIEF

News from Nato, hmmmmmmm...

November 5, 2014

Zakharchenko inaugurated in Ukraine's east

Pro-Russian rebels honour Ukraine's separatist leader Alexander Zakharchenko in an inauguration ceremony after his victory in elections.

Brussels: Russia has moved troops closer to the border with Ukraine and continues to support rebels in the country's east, NATO's chief said on Tuesday, after an election held by the pro-Russian separatists and condemned by Kiev and Western leaders.

Ukraine's president said Sunday's vote flouted terms of a plan to end a war that has killed more than 4000 people, and that newly formed army units would be sent to defend a string of eastern cities against a possible new rebel offensive.

"Recently we are seeing Russian troops moving closer to the border with Ukraine," Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of NATO, told a news conference with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

"Russia continues to support separatists by training them, by providing equipment and support them by also having Russian special forces inside eastern parts of Ukraine."

Russia has denied military involvement in eastern Ukraine despite what Western officials have cited as overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

"We call on Russia to make genuine efforts towards a peaceful solution," Mr Stoltenberg said, "and to use all their influence on the separatists to make them respect the Minsk agreements and to respect the ceasefire which is a precondition for a political solution to the difficult situation in Ukraine."
Mr Stoltenberg said Russia was also trying to show strength by increasing military flights close to NATO airspace in Europe.

"We [NATO] are intercepting the Russian planes whether it is in the Atlantic Sea or in the Baltic Sea or in the Black Sea. The numbers of intercepts have so far this year been over 100, which is about three times as much as the total number of intercepts the whole of last year," he said.

The pro-Russian separatists staged swearing-in ceremonies for their leaders in eastern Ukraine on Tuesday.

Moscow says the election of Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky as leaders of the Donetsk and Luhansk "people's republics", which jointly call themselves "New Russia", means that Kiev should now negotiate with them directly.

Kiev has rejected this, describing the rebels as Russian-backed "terrorists" or "bandits", with no legitimacy.

Ms Mogherini said the EU would assess whether to strengthen or ease sanctions imposed on Russia over its role in Ukraine depending on the situation on the ground.

"This is a process that is going to go on in the coming weeks," she said, when asked if Russia's response to Sunday's rebel ballot could trigger stiffer sanctions against Moscow.

The situation in Ukraine will be addressed at the next EU foreign ministers' meeting on November 17, she said.

"I would say the main topic of discussion today should be ... how do we make sure that we find a solution to the conflict?" the former Italian foreign minister said.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Monday that the newly elected leaders in eastern Ukrainian separatist regions have a "mandate" to negotiate with Kiev, Interfax news agency reported.

Ms Mogherini said the "so-called elections" in eastern Ukraine were illegal and illegitimate and would not be recognised by the EU. There was a risk they could end chances for rebel dialogue with Kiev and dialogue between Kiev and Moscow, she said.

The EU has gradually tightened sanctions against Russia in response to its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region in March, after the overthrow of Kiev's pro-Russian president by protesters, and its support for the rebel cause.

NAVY SEABEES STAND UP FORWARD OPERATING BASE DURING EXERCISE BOLD ALLIGATOR

Story Number: NNS141104-24Release Date: 11/4/2014 5:16:00 PM  

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jared Aldape

BOGUE, N.C. (NNS) -- Seabees from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Expeditionary Support Unit (EODESU) 2 showcased their unique brand of craftsmanship in an expeditionary capacity during Bold Alligator 2014 (BA14), a training exercise that runs through Nov. 10.

The Seabees constructed an entire forward operating base (FOB) during BA14 -- a capacity that has become their trademark throughout history.

The FOB, which plays a vital role during the exercise, was but a vacant field just a week prior. As part of exercise BA14, Seabees were tasked with creating a unique operating environment for the core of the expeditionary forces.

"The mobilization is a huge part of the process," said Engineering Aide 1st Class Asdru Arana, assigned to EODESU 2 and assistant site manager at Bogue FOB. "That's our bread and butter, we train to mount out within 48 hours. Planning is the most strenuous part of this evolution. Execution in my opinion is the easy part. If you fail the plan then you plan to fail."

Seabees conducted a number of site visits before they mobilized in preparation for the exercise.

"If you look at the topography of this area, this is all a drain hole," said Arana, motioning to a portion of the field that is slightly lower than the rest. Originally, the location would have been the FOB's Operation Center. "If we set up camp here a storm could flood out the entire area and damage electronics. We came up with a new plan for the layout and pitched it to all the planners. Some items worked and some had changed. Every plan is going to need an adjustment. Plans change on the fly."

EODESU 2 Seabees are also joined by Sailors from Navy Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 202 during BA14. The Seabees have generated more than 240 man-hours a day, and over 60 units of lumber daily between the two commands in dedication to the construction and upkeep of the Bogue FOB.

"Day in and day out, building assets to specification and according to the mission is what we do," said Utiltiesman 1st Class Robert Brooke, assigned to NMCB 202 and assistant site manager at Bogue FOB.

The Seabees were successful in standing up facilities to house communications and operation centers while setting up a perimeter and establishing an entry control point. In a systematic order, these construction experts made short work of setting up amenities for the FOB's inhabitants.

From laundry and shower facilities to a gym and dining area there doesn't seem to be any end to what the Seabees can provide for the make shift installation. "There's always an extra need at the camp," added Brooke. "If anyone on the FOB was unsure of what Seabees did, or what they're capable of doing it has become very apparent to them after walking through the camp. All of the amenities here are Seabee battalion driven."

The Seabees on the FOB are self-sufficient, they are the public works that keep the utilities running. They keep the generators maintained to produce the electricity that powers outlets. The communications center for example is powered by a generator.

These handy Sailors take pride in what they build and the products they present. Many of the intricate wooden projects such as the FOB's sentry shack are not going to waste after the conclusion of BA14. A number of the camps components will be turned over to the local Marines at Bogue Field for their use. "The Marines are more than happy to use the entry control point gate we've made for their airfield and other items for their own training scenarios."

The simplicity of integrating Seabees from other commands and battalions is not to be overlooked. According to Brooke, within the Seabee community, Sailors are cross trained and understand the fundamentals of each other's respective trades.

"For example, I'm a Utilitiesman and I'm also a pretty decent builder," said Brooke. "I actually do more builder work than that of a utilitiesman. We're skillful in each other's trades, and that makes us a capable force over than let's say an Army Soldier who may be just focused on carpentry. That's what makes us unique."

The concept allows Seabees to form a more cohesive unit by allowing the expectation that each member of the community has a basic understanding of how to being a construction project.

"It's about trust," added Brooke. "You can trust your Sailors to do their job safely and rely on each other."

The job of the Seabee doesn't stop after the construction ends, they also make up half of the FOB's security team that runs the entry control point as well as providing Humvee or High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) support to fortify the installation's security.

"I'm glad that we're here and exhibiting our capabilities, I hope they'll take that into consideration for further exercises," said Brooke.

It's easy to see how these Sailors fit seamlessly into the exercise alongside their support EODESU 2 counterparts.

"We are trained to work not only within Seabee battalions but to accomplish our job in high risk areas where EOD and special operate," he said.

Seabees can also attach with deployed Marine forces as part of a joint task force.

"Battalion is the green machine," explained Arana. "We deploy and attach to Marine units, build camps similar to this from the ground up in expeditionary environments. That's where we made our mark throughout history, and to this day we are deployed worldwide."

Today, the Seabees are making improvements to facilities to provide even more amenities to service members staying in the FOB. "You give me 20 Seabees from anywhere and we can make a lot of difference," said Arana.

BA14 is intended to improve Navy and Marine Corps amphibious core competencies. Working with coalition, NATO, allied and partner nations is a necessary investment in the current and future readiness of our forces. The exercise takes place Oct. 29 - Nov. 10, afloat and ashore along the Eastern seaboard.

USNS CHOCTAW COUNTY PARTICIPATES IN EXERCISE BOLD ALLIGATOR  2014

CHARLESTON, S.C. (NNS) -- Spearhead-class joint high speed vessel USNS Choctaw County (JHSV 2) is conducting proof-of-concept testing during Exercise Bold Alligator 2014 as an afloat forward staging base style platform.

Bold Alligator 2014 is underway in multiple states and along the Eastern Seaboard. In addition to 18 other U.S. Navy and coalition ships, one of the Navy's newest platforms is getting an opportunity to test itself.

"That includes the communications portion, launching of small boats and also helicopter operations," said Choctaw County's Chief's Mate Patrick Mullaney. "This shows us what we're able to do as a crew."

In the last week, Choctaw County hosted members of Special Boat Team 20 (SBT 20) and critical skills operators from U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command to conduct scenario training.

Mullaney said these scenarios give the ship's crew an opportunity to accurately represent what the vessel is capable of.

"These aren't missions that are unrealistic," said Mullaney. "It's very much something that these ships are going to be doing in the future. So for them to come aboard and do real-world scenarios and real-world training, it is beneficial to everyone."

Choctaw County brings many different capabilities to an already durable and powerful fleet.

"The on-station maneuverability and overall speed is fantastic, especially when compared to cargo vessels out there, or even amphibious ships," said Mullaney.

In addition to reaching maximum speeds of 35-45 knots, Choctaw County is equipped with an expansive flight deck, a load ramp capable of supporting 100 tons of weight and a 20,000 square-foot mission bay.

"The mission bay is also set up more for modular components," said Mullaney. "You can fit and fill anything you want in there. The ship was designed to be a ferry boat style vessel - to move, roll on and roll off cargo. However, there are concepts out there to make humanitarian type mission sets for hospitals, disaster relief, things like that. The possibilities for what the ship can do are really endless."

Mullaney said Choctaw County is proving itself to be a very versatile and capable ship with great possibilities.

"It has potential, but along with potential come the limitations of the vessel," said Mullaney. "There are communications limitations, as well as sea-states limitations, for launch and recovery of small boats."

Despite these challenges, the ship and crew continue to learn from both achievements and setbacks.

"It's really not going to be known whether or not the ship can do all these things well until you try them out," said Mullaney. "You need to try them in different sea states, different scenarios and different ports. It's really a trial and error type situation. That's exactly what exercises like this are designed to do."

Bold Alligator 2014 is intended to improve Navy and Marine Corps amphibious core competencies. Working with coalition, NATO, allied, and partner nations is a necessary investment in the current and future readiness of our forces. The exercise is scheduled to conclude Nov. 10.

NAVY'S INTERNATIONAL TRAINING COMMAND SELECTS TOP CIVILIAN

Story Number: NNS141104-26Release Date: 11/4/2014 6:13:00 PM  

By Lt. Cmdr. Shelline Floyd, Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity Public Affairs

PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- The Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) announced their selection of the civilian of the quarter (COQ) Nov. 4.

Lon Oliver, the NETSAFA Saudi Arabia Country Program Manager (CPM) was chosen as COQ for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014.

"I am truly honored to be selected as civilian of the quarter, especially with such a talented, diverse and dedicated civilian workforce here at NETSAFA," said Oliver.

He has served as the Saudi Arabia country manager for nearly 1 1/2 years, and before accepting his current position, he worked for three years as a CPM for seven countries within the Central Command (CENTCOM) area of operations. Oliver, a retired surface warfare officer, began his civil service career five years ago and said he appreciates that NETSAFA has allowed him the opportunity to remain connected to his military roots.

Oliver's supervisor, Ron Cooper, CENTCOM operations division supervisor, nominated him for the award, and says his Navy experience has indeed paid big dividends.

"His knowledge, professionalism, and outstanding demeanor have continued to resonate and impress the senior U.S. Navy, Royal Saudi Naval Force (RSNF) and Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) leadership involved with the security cooperation program," said Cooper.

As a CPM, Oliver develops education and training programs for officer and enlisted personnel covering the entire spectrum of surface, sub-surface and air warfare for Saudi Arabia. He provides technical advice in the assessment of training capabilities, logistics, and language training. His daily tasks require that he maintain up-to-date information on training available to international students, and plans to establish, disestablish, or change future training capabilities. He works closely with Navy International Programs Office (NIPO) and Saudi Navy International Programs Office (SNIPO) to stay abreast of constantly changing pricing policies resulting from congressional mandates and Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) policies. He also coordinates as required with USN, RSNF and RSAF leadership to assure mutual interpretation of policy guidance.

"Lon has tackled the ever-changing demands of the biggest and most manpower-intensive program assigned to the NETSAFA operations department and perhaps within the command," said Dave Babcock, operations department head. "His professional demeanor and ability to appropriately scope intricate Saudi issues to satisfactory resolution mark him as a manager who is clearly in a league of his own in satisfying the diverse demands of his position."

NETSAFA is the U.S. Navy's agent for international education and training and coordinates training support to international governments and international organizations. As a field activity of the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), the command serves as a focal point for all security assistance training program issues, coordination and advice within the U.S. Navy.

STRIKE GROUP LEADS CRISIS RESPONSE EXERCISE

Story Number: NNS141105-12Release Date: 11/5/2014 3:02:00 PM  

From Expeditionary Strike Group 2 Public Affairs

ATLANTIC OCEAN (NNS) -- More than 4,500 Sailors from 19 countries got underway to train across a range of simultaneous, and near simultaneous, crisis response missions during Exercise Bold Alligator, the largest, multinational, amphibious exercise conducted in a decade.

The exercise, which is scheduled to run Oct. 29 - Nov. 10 reached its midpoint, Nov. 4.

Rear Adm. Cindy Thebaud, commander, Expeditionary Strike Group 2, leads the multinational, maritime force of 18 ships, including platforms from five countries.

"Today's amphibious warfare operations are more than singular, large scale amphibious assaults," said Thebaud. "To reinforce skill sets across the full range of military operations, this year's Bold Alligator refocuses the Navy and Marine Corps team on crisis response. We are exercising in an environment where forces respond more rapidly and are capable of engaging multiple, dispersed objectives."

Attainment of said objectives requires coordination across military services, warfare areas, platforms and nations. Partnering with 2d Marine Expeditionary Brigade (2d MEB), ESG 2 leveraged various skills, experiences and capabilities offered by more than 8,000 Sailors and Marines to direct the planning and response of 23 exercise mission orders to date.

"The unique aspect of crisis response operations is the condensed planning timeline," said Capt. Kirk Weatherly, Expeditionary Strike Group 2's operations officer. "Immediate response requires immediate solutions and the use of on-hand personnel and equipment. Given our daily oversight of the East Coast amphibious force, ESG 2 is in a prime position to quickly match amphibious requirements and identify shortfalls for emergent tasking."

ESG 2 is also a contingency deployable staff and able to provide afloat expertise in areas that are not organic to amphibious squadrons, including areas such as rules of engagement, supply and public affairs. More centrally, the embarked command staff enables on-scene command and control to unify direction of multiple amphibious ready groups (ARGs).

Bold Alligator 2014 hosts amphibious ships, destroyers and frigates, which are distributed across three ARGs. The ARGs are commanded by two U.S. Navy amphibious squadron commodores and a Dutch rear admiral. The command ships include USS Kearsarge (LHD3), USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7), and HNLMS Johan de Witt (L801).

"In today's environment, the most formidable force consists of international partners and allies," said Thebaud. "Each nation brings unique capabilities, expertise and experience which strengthen global presence, flexibility and ability. Bold Alligator is a good demonstration of our interoperability. For instance, I have planners on my staff from seven countries, and the Johan de Witt ARG is led by Dutch Rear Adm. Rob Kramer, commander of the Netherlands Maritime Forces."

In addition to reinforcing proven partnerships, Bold Alligator is attempting to prove new concepts. A first to the Bold Alligator series, BA14 tested the Fly-in Command Element (FICE) concept as a means to more quickly provide on-scene flag and general officer command and control. At the start of the problem set, Kearsarge was pierside in accordance with the ship's routine deployment cycle. Upon receiving orders to respond to crises in the fictional Treasure Coast region, the ship began loading mission essential personnel, equipment, and ship-to-shore connectors. Simultaneously, a "suitcase" staff that consisted 12 ESG-2 personnel, including Thebaud, flew to Iwo Jima, which was already operating in the exercise area, in order to immediately establish command and control of the maritime force. A similar 12-person Marine staff element, commanded by Maj. Gen. Richard Simcock, commander, 2d Marine Expeditionary Brigade provided initial command and control of the landing force.

Once Kearsarge arrived in theater, Thebaud, Simcock and their initial headquarters elements shifted their flags from Iwo Jima to Kearsarge to join the rest of their afloat staff, whose expertise was leveraged, while Kearsarge was in transit.

"The FICE concept allows us to quickly establish command and control on a forward deployed Navy ship," said Col. Jim McGrath, deputy commander, Expeditionary Strike Group 2. "It allows the commanders the opportunity to assert their presence to have a coordinated and immediate impact on the mission."

McGrath further explained the Navy-Marine Corps team brings a unique contribution to the FICE.

"We offer multi-domain command and control over land, air and sea in a single naval battle construct," he said.

Bold Alligator is an annual exercise intended to improve Navy and Marine Corps amphibious core competencies and takes place afloat and ashore along the Eastern Seaboard.

GUNNER'S MATE "A" SCHOOL UPGRADES TO WIRELESS FIREARMS TRAINING SIMULATOR

Story Number: NNS141107-07Release Date: 11/7/2014 1:54:00 PM   

By Sue Krawczyk, Training Support Center Great Lakes Public Affairs

GREAT LAKES, Ill. (NNS) -- In an effort to provide the highest level of realism in weapons handling training, gunner's mates (GM) at the Fire Arms Training System (FATS) at Center for Surface Combat Systems Unit (CSCSU) Great Lakes, Illinois, used a new wireless training system for the class that graduated Nov. 7.

Previously, students were trained using a tethered firearms training simulator, but now have the ability to train with weapons using commercial wireless Bluetooth technology. The wireless weapons communicate with the FATS, giving the same control as tethered weapons, but with a full range of motion.

"The new wireless weapons replicate the fit and function of live weapons providing the same accurate, real-time training diagnostics as did our older tethered weapons simulator, but better," said Cmdr. Gregory C. Ludwig, commanding officer, CSCSU. "Students are now afforded a broader range of motion - as the new Bluetooth-equipped weapons are wireless with no external components."

According to Ludwig, to further enhance the virtual firearms training experience, weapon recoil is achieved with a rechargeable magazine of compressed air. This is significant in that while not tethered, these weapons retain full sensor feedback for robust diagnostics and after action review.

"If you took your own personal firearm out to the range and fired, you wouldn't have any cables coming off of it," said Matt Wooldridge, CSCSU weapons instructor. "It feels like, operates and looks like the real deal."

Students use a M9 9mm pistol as well as the M-16 rifle in class, which is the same weapons previously used, except without the cables, and are the same types of weapons used in the fleet.

"These weapons are just like they are going to get out of a weapons locker on board ship," said Lenny Swaney, CSCSU weapons instructor. "This simulation allows the students to get more accustomed to the weapons, as they have the same realistic feel."

Lt. Joseph Luthy, director, combat systems "A" school at CSCSU, believes this latest technology is a significant upgrade for the students because of the more realistic features of the weapon simulator.

"Any time you have a cable tethered to something, it feels as if you're firing something other than a weapon," said Luthy. "Students more likely to follow the weapons handling safety precautions with a realistic weapon, which helps them put the right foot forward in the future."

CSCSU GM "A" school is approximately 27 weeks long and has an average annual throughput of 386 students. GMs are responsible for the operation and maintenance of guided-missile launching systems, underwater explosive weapons such as torpedoes, rockets and missiles and the systems used to launch them, gun mounts and other ordnance equipment, as well as small-arms magazines. They work with electrical and electronic circuitry and mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

"Combining this Bluetooth technology with our seasoned instructors makes weapons training as realistic as possible," added Ludwig. "Our eventual goal is for students to safely achieve weapon handling experience that allows them to quickly and accurately qualify on a live range; it saves the Navy both time and money."

HAMAS FORMS 'POPULAR ARMY' TO "LIBERATE PALESTINE'

Hamas announces the creation of a "popular army" in Gaza, says it is ready for a confrontation with Israel.

By Elad Benari, Canada
First Publish: 11/7/2014, 10:40 PM



Terrorists from Hamas' Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in Gaza

Hamas announced the creation of a "popular army" in Gaza on Friday, AFP reports, saying it was ready for any future conflict with Israel, particularly over the Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

At a ceremony at the Jabaliya camp in northern Gaza, a spokesman for Hamas’s “military wing”, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, said 2,500 recruits would form "the first section of the popular army for the liberation of Al-Aqsa and of Palestine".

Mohammed Abu Askar, a Hamas official, said those older than 20 could sign up "to be prepared for any confrontation" with Israel.

Abu Askar said the new force had been established "at a moment when the Al-Aqsa mosque is subject to serious Israeli violations".

Another Al-Qassam spokesman said "the people, arms and the tunnels are going well", in reference to Hamas's network of underground passages, hundreds of which have been destroyed by Israel and Egypt to prevent arms smuggling.

The new “popular army” and the Hamas threats come amid continuing tensions in Jerusalem in general and particularly on the Temple Mount, fueled by Arab riots in the capital.

Violent Arab rioting on the Temple Mount on Wednesday forced police to enter the Al-Aqsa mosque as rioters barricaded themselves inside.

Nevertheless, it is Israel that has been blamed for the violence, with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas warning Jews against ascending the Temple Mount and claiming that the “break-ins by the settlers and Jewish extremists” to the Al-Aqsa ,osque are a violation of Muslim feelings.

Hamas, for its part, welcomed this week two terrorist attacks against Israelis: A car terror attack in Jerusalem which killed a Border Patrol officer and a 17-year-old teenager, and a similar attack several hours later in which a terrorist tried to run over IDF soldiers in Gush Etzion, injuring three.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said on Wednesday that the terrorist who carried out the attack in Jerusalem had acted in a "natural response to the crimes of the (Israeli) occupation against Al-Aqsa mosque and occupied Jerusalem."

In an almost identical call to one made by Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas last month, Abu Zuhri urged "all Palestinians to use all means to oppose the crimes of the occupiers against Al-Aqsa."

CALL TO MOBILIZE RESERVISTS TO SECURE JERUSALEM

Beit Aryeh council head Avi Naim says the time is ripe to call up reservists for Jerusalem - and may be the way to establish deterrence.

Avi Naim

Avi Naim, head of the Beit Aryeh council in western Samaria, called to mobilize reserve forces to stabilize the security situation in Jerusalem on Friday, in a special interview with Arutz Sheva

"The situation is explosive and sensitive," Naim stated. "There is the guiding hand of [Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud] Abbas there, who wants to burn the city [down], and the fact that there are no incidents in Judea-Samaria."

"[Jerusalem] needs reinforcements, and we should call up the reserves, so the [IDF] is seen everywhere and so that we take a firm hand [against terrorists]," he added.

According to Naim, the way to prevent the situation from deteriorating further is to be firm with Jerusalem's Arab population.

"It is still possible to stop the deterioration [in Jerusalem]," Naim said. "A sovereign state cannot afford to overlook incidents."

Naim also referred to Wednesday night's terror attack at the Shimon Hatzadik light rail station in Jerusalem, saying that the Border Police shooting the terrorist is "the only way to send a message" to the Arab rioters. 

"This should be the method: when a terrorist attacks, he dies, and they destroy his family's home," Naim urged. "This is the only way [terrorists] will think twice before attacking." 

Naim's words surface after three major terror attacks in Jerusalem in two weeks: a rampage near the Jerusalem light rail that killed a three month-old baby and a seminary student, the attempted murder of Temple Mount rights activist Yehuda Glick, and Wednesday's attack, which killed a Border Policeman and a 17-year-old. 

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat revealed last week that crime in Jerusalem had skyrocketed over the past several weeks, from 200 incidents per month to over 5,000. 

The criticism also surfaces amid an escalation in discontent with the decision-makers in the security establishment - including Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich and Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino - who have become a focal point for criticism over the past several months for their alleged denial of the severity of the situation. 

Just days ago, a Cabinet meeting erupted into a series of criticisms over Aharonovich's term as minister, after several MKs blasted his handling of recent terror attacks in light of last week's attempted murder of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick.

OBAMA ENVOIE UNE LETTRE SECRETE A SAYED ALI KHAMENEI




Le mois dernier, le président américain Barack Obama a envoyé une lettre secrète à l'Iran au sujet de la lutte contre l'Etat islamique ou Daesh, a annoncé le Wall Street Journal.

Il a insisté dans cette lettre adressée à l'Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei que les Etats-Unis et l'Iran avaient des intérêts communs à lutter contre l'Etat islamique en Syrie et en Irak.

Il a ajouté que cette question pourrait être intégrée dans un accord plus global sur le nucléaire iranien.

Sans nier l'existence de cette lettre, les responsables de l'administration Obama se refusent cependant à tout commentaire.

Le porte-parole de la Maison Blanche Josh Earnest a déclaré: "Je ne suis pas en mesure de parler de la correspondance privée entre le président et n'importe quel dirigeant de la planète".

Il a répété la position américaine selon laquelle "les Etats-Unis ne coopéreront pas militairement avec l'Iran, et ne partageront pas les données de leur renseignement".

Il s'agit de la quatrième lettre adressée par Obama au guide suprême de la révolution islamique depuis son élection en 2009.

Toutefois, Sayed Khamenei n'a pas directement répondu à la lettre d'Obama.

Le Journal a rapporté que la Maison Blanche a gardé en secret cette  correspondance pour ne pas contrarier ses alliés au Moyen-Orient, y compris Israël, l'Arabie saoudite et les Émirats arabes unis.

MORE INFOS :

 FALSE FLAG WARNING NYC: FULL-SCALE ‘EBOLA’ PANDEMIC DRILL TO GO LIVE NOV. 13,
2014 11 05

By Shepard Ambellas | intellihub.com



Obama admin and media to Hype "Ebola Outbreak" simultaneously as full-scale FEMA pandemic excercise is carried out Nov. 13 in NYC, NJ — crisis actors, role players to be used.

A massive 2-year long pandemic “continuity exercise” is nearing “stage three” of five on November 13th, going live in “New York City” and “other locations”, according to new documents and audio/video recordings uncovered by Intellihub News.

Shockingly, in a jaw dropping admission, a FEMA official was caught telling role players during a live webinar session that FEMA plans to use people’s fears of “Ebola” and what has “been reported in the news” to “drive” this realtime “full-scale” event.

“I will also take the time to say now, we were very aware of all the responses we are getting that Ebola is very high on people’s attention list. And so rest assured we have taken a lot of the things that are actually happening with the Ebola crisis and factored them into the exercise. They are just under the cover of you know, what would happen during a pandemic. So we have actually taken things that we have seen, things that have been reported in the news, things that we’ve heard from partners and made sure that we are going to get a chance and deal with those actions.”, stated a FEMA official conducting a pandemic “master scenario” webinar presentation for role players, i.e. crisis actors, privy to details of the exercise.

THE AGENCIES INVOLVED


According to FEMA, “The Federal Executive Boards in New York City and Northern New Jersey in partnership with FEMA Region II, The Department of Health and Human Services Region II, Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) and the Clearing House Association are sponsoring” the drill.

The exercise objectives are to mitigate vulnerabilities during a pandemic influenza outbreak; to identify gaps or weaknesses in pandemic planning or in organization pandemic influenza continuity plans, policies, & procedures; and encourage public and private organizations to jointly plan for, and test, their pandemic influenza plans.

Other key players involved with planning and research may be but are not limited to the following people/organizations:

Andrew Chen, US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
Eugene Buerkle, National Grid
Lance Plyler, MD, Samaritan’s Purse – Africa Based NGO
Nicholas V. Cagliuso, Sr., PhD, MPH, New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation
Interestingly, a “final planning meeting” for agency and firm “lead controllers” and “evaluators” will be held just one week ahead of the live full-scale event at 26 Federal Plaza, New York, NY, conference room, starting at 9 am on Nov. 6-7.



The remaining dates of the 2-year long exercise will play out as follows:

Location: 26 Federal Plaza, New York, NY Conference Room A/B or Conference Call 800-320-4330; pin 528585#



It is also worthy to note that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is concerned about how telecommunications will hold up if such a pandemic outbreak were to actually occur as they expect phone lines to be jammed up by bedridden and quarantined people along with health workers trying to do their jobs. This hypothetical is also set to be included and evaluated in the exercise and may in fact be what prompted the recent unannounced takeover of various television sets followed by an “emergency alert” announcement from the White House on Oct. 24 as reported by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com.

In the report titled White House Emergency Alert Interrupts Viewers Across America, Watson wrote:

Americans watching television across the country were puzzled earlier today when an alert from the White House interrupted their viewing, told them to stand by for an emergency message and warned them not to use their phones.

TV channels automatically changed to local news stations but no White House message ever came, prompting confusion and concern, especially given heightened tensions amidst the Ebola crisis.

SG/SM/16301-SG/A/1421-PKO/451

LE SECRETAIRE GENERAL CREE LE GROUPE INDEPENDANT DE HAUT NIVEAU SUR LES OPERATIONS DE PAIX QUE PRESIDERA M. JOSE RAMOS-HORTA
La déclaration suivante a été communiquée, aujourd’hui, par le Secrétaire général de l’ONU, M. Ban Ki-moon:
Le monde change et les opérations de paix des Nations Unies doivent également changer afin de rester un outil indispensable et efficace de promotion de la PAIX et de la SECURITE INTERNATIONALES.  C’est pour cette raison que j’annonce aujourd’hui l’établissement d’un Groupe indépendant de haut niveau sur les opérations de paix.  J’ai nommé M. José Ramos-Horta, du Timor-Leste, comme Président du Groupe indépendant qui va regrouper des personnalités pourvues d’une vaste expérience et expertise.

Le Groupe procèdera à une évaluation complète de l’état des opérations de paix de l’ONU et des besoins émergents et futurs.  Le Groupe examinera une large palette de questions en rapport avec les opérations de PAIX, notamment la nature changeante des conflits, l’évolution des mandats, les défis liés aux missions de bons offices et à la consolidation de la PAIX, les arrangements managériaux et administratifs, la planification, les partenariats, les droits de l’homme et la protection des civils, l’uniformité des capacités des opérations de maintien de la PAIX et leur performance.

La dernière grande évaluation externe des opérations de PAIX avait été menée en l’an 2000 sous la direction de M. Lakhdar Brahimi.  En outre, le nouveau Groupe indépendant sera le premier du genre qui devra évaluer à la fois les opérations de maintien de la PAIX  et les missions politiques spéciales.

À l’approche du quinzième anniversaire du rapport Brahimi, nous devons reconnaître que les missions de PAIX actuelles sont de plus en plus appelées à affronter les conflits politiques complexes et difficiles, souvent dans des conditions de sécurité précaires où les opérations de maintien de la PAIX sont directement ciblées.  Nous devons faire le point sur l’évolution des attentes et examiner comment l’Organisation peut davantage faire avancer la paix, aider les pays en conflit et veiller à ce que nos opérations de maintien de la PAIX et les missions politiques spéciales demeurent solides et efficaces dans un contexte mondial en pleine mutation.

Le Groupe travaillera en étroite collaboration avec les principaux départements des Nations Unies concernés, ainsi qu’avec les États Membres et le système des Nations Unies dans son ensemble.  Les recommandations que le Groupe indépendant me proposera seront disponibles pour examen par l’Assemblée générale au cours de son débat général de 2015.

Les membres du Groupe indépendant de haut niveau sur les opérations de PAIX sont: M. José Ramos-Horta (Timor-Leste), M. Jean Arnault (France), M. Abhijit Guha (Inde), Mme Ameerah Haq (Bangladesh), M. Andrew Hughes (Australie), M. Alexander Ilitchev (Fédération de Russie), Mme Hilde F. Johnson (Norvège), M. Bruce Jones (Canada), M. Youssef Mahmoud (Tunisie), M. Ian Martin (Royaume-Uni), Mme Henrietta Joy Abena Nyarko Mensa-Bonsu (Ghana), M. B. Lynn Pascoe (États-Unis), M. Floriano Peixoto Vieira Neto (Brésil) et M. Wang Xuexian (Chine).

FINAL PHASE OF 20th ANNUAL CARAT EXERCISE SERIES KICKS OFF IN BRUNEI

Story Number: NNS141110-05Release Date: 11/10/2014 9:58:00 AM  

From Destroyer Squadron 7 Public Affairs


141030-N-TG831-029 GULF OF THAILAND (Oct. 30, 2014) Lt. j.g. Betty Chang, from Portland, Or., assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin (DDG 89), works with sailors aboard the Royal Cambodian Navy Stenka-class patrol fast-attack craft 1131 during a bilateral gunnery exercise during Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) Cambodia 2014. In its 20th year, CARAT is an annual, bilateral exercise series with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the armed forces of nine partner nations including, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Republic of Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Timor-Leste.

MAURA, Brunei (NNS) -- The 20th annual Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) Brunei commenced at Maura Naval Base in Brunei, Nov. 10.

Original CARAT partners, Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) have participated since the exercise began in 1995. CARAT Brunei marks the final phase of the 2014 series, which began in May with partner nations in South and Southeast Asia. It provides a credible venue for regional navies to share best practices, foster relationships and enhance maritime security cooperation.

Rear Adm. Charlie Williams, commander, Task Force 73, and U.S. 7th Fleet's executive agent for Theater Security Cooperation in South and Southeast Asia delivered remarks to participating U.S. Navy Sailors, U.S. Marines and members of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.

"The sea has connected our nations, our people and our naval forces since the USS Constitution visited Brunei for the first time in 1845," said Williams. "As our premier naval exercise rooted in longstanding cooperation at sea, CARAT Brunei provides unique opportunities to sharpen skills and work together in ways that will serve our nations and the region for many years to come."

Continuing through Nov. 14, this year's exercise features several new events including maritime security, search and rescue and aviation maintenance symposia ashore, as well as shipboard helicopter operations and a simulated medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) at sea.

Additional symposia ashore will bring together professionals from both navies to discuss best practices in military law and military medicine. Japan Regional Maintenance Center divers will train with their RBAF counterparts in hull inspection and surface supplied breathing techniques.

Community service events and joint performances by the U.S. 7th Fleet and RBAF bands will occur throughout the local community.

A platoon of U.S. Marines from 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force will conduct military operations on urban terrain training with their Royal Brunei Land Forces counterparts at the Fibua Military Operations on Urbanized Terrain complex.

At sea, USS Rodney M. Davis (FFG 60), embarked with Destroyer Squadron 7 commodore and staff and an MH-60R helicopter, will train with the Royal Brunei Navy ship, KDB Darulaman (P-08), and a Royal Brunei Air Force S-70A helicopter. In addition to maneuvering and surface gunnery drills, highlights include maritime boarding scenarios, RBAF crossdeck landing qualifications aboard Rodney M. Davis, and a maritime domain awareness exercise involving both helicopter versions and the P-3C aircraft.

Capt. Fred Kacher, Destroyer Squadron 7 commodore and exercise commander, discussed the upcoming sea phase following the ceremony.

"We deeply value our naval partnership with the RBN, as evidenced by their participation in both the Rim of the Pacific exercise earlier this summer and the Southeast Asia Cooperation at Sea exercise in August, " said Kacher. "This week's CARAT is another great opportunity for our navies to get out to sea together and strengthen our ability to operate safely and professionally with one another."

In its 20th year, CARAT is an annual, bilateral exercise series with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the armed forces of nine partner nations including, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Republic of Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Timor-Leste.

KOBANI UPDATE: ISIS MANAGES TO UNITE KURDISH FACTIONS, AND THAT'S WORRYING TURKEY

By Alessandria Masi @alessandriamasia.masi@ibtimes.com on October 31 2014 10:44 PM

Since it declared its caliphate earlier this year, the Islamic State group has attacked different Kurdish factions in Iraq and Syria, focusing on the town of Kobani -- but so far the militants’ main achievement has been uniting the many and sometimes historically rival Kurdish factions on the battlefield, creating political partnerships where there had been enmity. That has also created a headache for Turkey -- historically an enemy of the Kurds. 

“Duress brings the Kurds together, and they’re more unified now than they were before,” said David Phillips, director of Columbia University’s program on Peace-building and Rights, and senior adviser to the State Department for the last three administrations. “The only group that has shown any mettle on the battlefield are the Kurds.”

Kurdish forces have clashed with the group also known as ISIS in Syria’s border city of Kobani for nearly 50 days in what has become one of the closest watched and longest lasting battles involving ISIS. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, the Kurds’ united front against militants has so far been effective, with aerial support from a U.S.-led coalition. The newfound Kurdish solidarity between Iraqi, Syrian and Turkish Kurds is unlikely to result in an all-encompassing, independent Kurdistan, but some alliances will last, experts said.

“The new independent entity is Iraqi Kurdistan which will stand up as Iraq falls down and it will confederate with Kurdish regions in Syria,” said Phillips. “But confederate does not mean that Rojava [Kurdish-controlled Syria] will become part of the new independent entity. It may in the future but that won’t happen right away.”

The Syria’s Kurdish People’s Defense Units (YPG) took control of Kobani in 2012 and declared it the center of Syrian Kurdistan earlier this year, taking precedence over the two other Kurdish cantons in Syria: Jezira and Efrin. Jezira shares part of its border with Iraq, where ISIS has attacked Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga forces. A peshmerga unit made up of about 150 people aligned with two separate Iraqi Kurdish political parties arrived in Turkey this week, with the intent of crossing into Kobani to help the YPG.

“We are proud that our people in Rojava and in Kurdistan Region are bravely fighting ISIS terrorists and inflicted heavy losses on them,” Massoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Regional Government and leader of the Iraqi Kurdish Democratic Party (KDP), posted on his Twitter page.

This was an unprecedented show of solidarity, as the KDP has long been at odds with Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its YPG army, both offshoots of Turkey’s Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). However, Iraq’s other Kurdish political parties such as the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) are allied with the YPG.

“Iraqi Kurds are not one single voice,” said Kurdish affairs analyst and commentator Mutlu Civiroglu. “They have drastically different stances on Rojava. The KDP remained isolated so they had to agree as well. The rest of the political parties in parliament are siding with PYD and YPG.”

Peshmerga fighters may not have a significant impact on the battlefield in Kobani, but “it has symbolical meaning. Kurds appreciate the fact that their brothers in Iraq [are] coming all the way to fight for Syrians,” said Civiroglu. “It’s not the substance that people are appreciating, that people are cheering for. It’s the sentiment, it’s the aspiration that they’re cheering for.”

Although Turkey allowed a small number of coalition-allied peshmerga to cross into Kobani, it does not want its own Kurdish groups to help the YPG. Turkey has resisted getting involved in the battle for Kobani as it has long been at odds with the PKK, which it designated a terrorist organization.
Turkey’s resistance to Kurdish unity in Kobani has strained its relationships with countries in the coalition to combat ISIS, the Washington Post reported. But the possibility of a future independent Iraqi Kurdistan allied with Rojava doesn’t pose an immediate threat to Turkey, experts said.

“The Kurds in Turkey are not seeking union with Iraqi Kurdistan,” said Phillips. “But they’ve certainly joined the fight against ISIS.”

"Kurds have been paying the highest price in Iraq and Syria because Kurds are tolerant people. They are a multicultural society,” said Civiroglu. “ISIS ideology is threatened by Kurdish ideology.”

POUTINE CREE UNE «ARMEE ISLAMIQUE»!

  12 novembre 2014  Géopolitique Réseau International



La Russie va non seulement créer sa légion étrangère, elle veut également créer ses mercenaires à la Academi. La Douma a récemment proposé des textes de loi pour légaliser des compagnies de sécurité. Quand tout cela sera en place, les terroristes des anglo-américains vont avoir chaud aux fesses…

***

C’est sans doute une antidote aux tentatives de  » jihadisation » du Caucase et de l’Asie centrale :les députés de la Douma russe viennent de proposer la création d’une « légion islamique » à l’image de la « légion étrangère » en France ! Le site Europainfo qui rapporte cette information, citant les députés russes, affirme que la formation d’une armée musulmane » composée de soldats non russes constituerait une garantie pour la stabilité de l’Asie centrale.  » C’est une initiative destinée à préserver la Russie de la menace des islamistes radicaux, disent les députés. « 

Cette légion islamique comportera des soldats ouzbeks , et tadjiks et d’autres soldats musulmans rallieront cette armée via des contrats qu’ils signeront avec le ministère russe de la Défense. Ces soldats seront rémunérés par le gouvernement russe. Ils pourront obtenir la nationalité russe au bout de six ans de service ».

Selon les derniers chiffres publiés, quelques 295 ressortissants étrangers servent l’armée russe soit 89 ouzbeks, 66 tadjiks, 22 azéris, 22 arméniens, 8 biélorusses, 9 ukrainiens entre autre ». Selon les observateurs , cette initiative est destinée à empêcher le mercenariat en Asie centrale, un mercenariat qui pourrait être nourri par les Etats unis et leurs alliés arabes avec en toile de fond le recrutement des jihadistes takfiris d’origine caucasienne et centre asiatique.

L'ANCIEN MINISTRE DES AFFAIRES ETRANGERES DU ROYAUME-UNI : NOUS AVONS TRAVAILLE AVEC LES TERRORISTES ISLAMISTES DANS L'ESPOIR DE RENVERSER ASSAD

Published on Saturday, 01 November 2014 08:58

L'ancien ministre des Affaires étrangères britannique, William Hague, a admis que les services secrets de son pays (MI6) avait utilisé des groupes terroristes extrémistes telles que ISIS dans une tentative de renverser le gouvernement syrien de Bachar al-Assad.

Un politicien conservateur, M. Hague a reconnu que plus de passé il ya trois ans, les services de renseignement occidentaux ont cherché à renverser le régime syrien par tous les moyens, y compris l'armement des militants les plus fanatiques.

"Après ISIS envahi les grandes villes irakiennes au début et à la mi-Juillet, notre relation avec les rebelles irakiens ont commencé à se détériorer, mais encore nous maintenir nos contacts avec la faction modérée dans ISIS», a déclaré l'homme politique perspicace britannique mardi.

Se référant à ISIS crimes de guerre abominable en particulier ceux contre les citoyens occidentaux, William Hague a ajouté que son ministère ne pouvait pas poursuivre ses contacts réguliers avec l'État soi-disant islamique en raison de l'aversion croissante du public contre les insurgés ISIS en Europe et aux États-Unis.

«Je crois fermement que la meilleure stratégie pour faire face à l'orthographe sectaire et la violence ethnique dans le Moyen-Orient est de cibler les rebelles al-Qaïda en Irak affiliation, alors que dans le même temps encourager les milices islamiques modérés notamment al-Nusra avant, dans la Syrie voisine, "RT a cité l'ancien ministre britannique comme disant.

SUCCESSFUL INTERNATIONAL MINE COUNTERMEASURES EXERCISE CONCLUDES

Story Number: NNS141113-02Release Date: 11/13/2014 8:58:00 AM 

From U.S. Naval Forces Central Command Public Affairs


141110-N-NI474-574 ARABIAN GULF (Nov. 10, 2014) Ships line up in formation for a photo exercise in the Arabian Gulf during the International Mine Countermeasures Exercise (IMCMEX). With a quarter of the world's navies participating including 6,500 Sailors from every region, IMCMEX is the largest international naval exercise promoting maritime security and the free-flow of trade through mine countermeasure operations, maritime security operations, and maritime infrastructure protection in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility and throughout the world.

MANAMA, Bahrain (NNS) -- This year's International Mine Countermeasures Exercise (IMCMEX) concluded in Bahrain Nov. 13, after nearly three weeks of seminars and training maneuvers.

The exercise provided a wide array of maritime operations designed to promote international interoperability, protect global commerce and ensure secure sea lanes.

More than 6,500 military service members from more than 40 nations, along with 700 civilian mariners, operated 38 naval ships, 32 civilian merchant vessels and three exercise task forces throughout the Arabian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea.

"This year's exercise has been a great success," said Vice Adm. John W. Miller, commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT)/5th Fleet (C5F)/Combined Maritime Forces (CMF). "Not only did we have more nations participate and greater involvement from the commercial shipping industry, but we also greatly improved on the complexity of our scenarios, command and control of our vessels, interoperability, the quality of our presentations and discussions, and our multilateral interactions in general."

Mine countermeasures (MCM) operations included ships, crews and observers underway to conduct training in at-sea maneuvers, mine hunting operations, aerial MCM operations, explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) operations and unmanned underwater vehicles. The exercise continued to confirm the effectiveness of the afloat staging base concept, employing the British amphibious assault vessels HMS Bulwark (L15) and RFA Cardigan Bay (L3009) and the Afloat Forward Staging Base (Interim) USS Ponce (AFSB(I) 15), as a platform for mine countermeasures.

"While the mine countermeasure part of this exercise was key, [the exercise] delivered far more," said Commodore Keith Blount, Royal Navy, deputy commander Combined Maritime Forces and Commander of this year's International Maritime Exercise Force. "Broader maritime security operations (MSO) and maritime infrastructure protection (MIP) were equally as important components and enhanced our proficiency in proving our ability to deliver port-of-departure to port-of-arrival security. It has been a large success."

MSO focused on an outward facing force protection concept that provides a safe environment for ships to conduct MCM and MIP. These operations allow naval vessels to provide convoy escorts to commercial merchant shipping to ensure safe navigation through chokepoints and de-mined sea lanes for the free flow of international goods. During the exercise, naval forces and civilian mariners planned and executed more than 500 nautical miles of multinational convoys through the Strait of Hormuz, one of which included a very large crude oil carrier. These types of ships are the world's largest moving objects. MSO also included search and rescue, mass casualty treatment, and visit, boarding, search and seizure drills.

A three-day MIP symposium, prior to the beginning of the at-sea phase of the exercise, provided an exchange of ideas as industry representatives discussed means to ensure the safety of maritime commerce through vital sea lanes and at strategic sea ports with senior leaders from participating countries. MIP included close engagement with industry partners, conducting a table-top oil-spill exercise, and standing up a cell to coordinate military and civilian shipping.

"The MIP symposium provided us with a great opportunity to bring together governments, militaries and industry to discuss how we can best provide the necessary foundation of security that supports unrestricted access to the vital maritime infrastructure that is critical to regional and global economies," said Miller.

In addition to the symposium, expanded mass casualty drills that simulated maritime accidents extended the infrastructure protection concept to include medical triage and evacuation of injured personnel.

This year's IMCMEX took place in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, which encompasses about 2.5 million square miles of water and includes the Arabian Gulf, Arabian Sea, Gulf of Oman, Red Sea, and parts of the Indian Ocean. Twenty countries comprise this expanse, which includes three critical choke points at the Strait of Hormuz, the Suez Canal and the Strait of Bab al Mandeb at the southern tip of Yemen.

LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES RESPOND FOR DRILL AT FENTRESS

Story Number: NNS141107-25Release Date: 11/7/2014 9:18:00 PM  

By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Alysia R. Hernandez, Naval Air Station Oceana Public Affairs

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (NNS) -- Sirens blared just before 9 a.m. at Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF) Fentress in Chesapeake, Virginia, for an exercise Nov. 5.

The exercise scenario started as an aircraft mishap and escalated to include a chemical biological agent, requiring further assistance from better equipped emergency responders.

"Fentress is home to a lot of fixed wing [aircraft] and helicopter operations throughout the year," said Capt. Kit Chope, commanding officer of Naval Air Station Oceana, Dam Neck Annex and NALF Fentress. "Today's scenario is going to involve a helicopter. What happens after that and what chemicals or hazardous materials may or may not be on board; that's what we'll find out and that's why we've got the experts from the Virginia National Guard here to do their testing, to find out what we can do to protect the local population."

Exercises like this allow multiple agencies the opportunity to work together as they would in a real life emergency situation.

"The exercise is going to be a simulation of an emergency. We're going to have local responders from local, state and federal response teams doing what we do in a real world situation, which is to come in and ascertain the dangers and work together, which is the key point of this exercise," said Maj. Michael Booker, commander of the 34th Civil Support Team (CST) of the Virginia National Guard.

Booker said that one of the difficulties of an exercise involving the different levels of local, state and federal agencies is that each of their teams practice on their own and know how to handle a situation individually. "This is a great opportunity for the different levels to work together to see how we would do it in the real world where we're working together to accomplish the same goal," he added.

Chope said learning how to communicate with each other has been learned in past exercises, but there is no substitute for getting out in the field and actually doing the training.

"We can talk about it all day, we can brief it all day long, but until we get out here into the open field, until we put water on fire, until we set up the equipment to test for toxins in the air, we aren't sure what we're going to get," said Chope.

Chope said when a situation occurs, everything happens exceptionally fast. "That's why we train for this, to make the decisions on our feet and figure out what the next step is."

John Heistand, Oceana's base training officer, said the exercise scenario began with a helicopter flying over the farm fields surrounding Fentress, it lost control and crashed onto Fentress air field and the Navy firefighters responded.

"Based off of medical conditions of people in the surrounding area it was determined that this could be some kind of possible [chemical] agent," Heistand said.

Heistand said the City of Chesapeake responded to assist with the fire and brought their HAZMAT team in. Chesapeake's HAZMAT team was unable to detect anything on their hazardous materials reading but due to the medical conditions of individuals who initially responded to the incident, it was determined to be a possible chemical agent. "Therefore, the 34th Civil Support Team was requested by the city of Chesapeake using the governor's office," said Heistand.

This exercise marks the first time Oceana has worked with the 34th CST from the Virginia National Guard.

"How we got them involved was due to other exercises and discussing recovery," Heistand said. "One of the assets that was continuously coming up was the 34th Civil Support Team, so we developed a scenario that would allow the City of Chesapeake to request their assistance in recovery of an incident that occurred on Fentress airfield."

"This is by far the most complex drill we've run," Heistand said.

He added that this exercise has been in the works for over a year and planning has already begun for the next major exercise scheduled for December 2015. The next exercise will incorporate lessons learned from this Fentress drill.

BREAKING -- TOP GENERALS REVEAL OBAMA'S SECRET HIGH LEVEL MILITARY PURGE...




(by F. Michael Maloof, WND) – Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, as well as other top retired officers, say President Obama’s agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win.

“There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him” over such issues as “homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester,” Brady told WND.

“They are purging everyone, and if you want to keep your job, just keep your mouth shut,” one source told WND.

Not only are military service members being demoralized and the ranks’ overall readiness being reduced by the Obama administration’s purge of key leaders, colonels – those lined up in rank to replace outgoing generals – are quietly taking their careers in other directions.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was with Delta Force and later Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush, says it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama.

“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” Boykin said.

“I believe there is a purging of the military,” he said. “The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”

Boykin points out that the military adheres to the constitutional requirement of a civilian leadership over the military. As a consequence, officers are not allowed to criticize their civilian leadership, as occurred when Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal was relieved in 2010 of his command of the International Security Assistance Force and commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan.

He was relieved due to what has been described as unflattering remarks made about Vice President Joe Biden and other administration officials in a Rolling Stone magazine article. He was recalled to Washington where Obama accepted his resignation as commander in Afghanistan.

Boykin says that because of the fundamental civilian leadership over the military, McCrystal was “appropriately forced to retire.”

Some officers were involved in adulterous affairs and those situations, Boykin said, also were grounds for dismissal.

Boykin specifically said that because of the civilian-military relationship, he did not see any prospect for a “coup” coming from the military ranks.

“People I’ve spoken to would like to see the military ‘fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,’” Boykin said. “Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You’re not going to see a coup in the military.”

Nevertheless, Boykin said the future of the military is becoming more and more of concern, since colonels who would be generals also are being relieved of duty, if they show that they’re not going to support Obama’s agenda, which critics have described as socialist.

“I talk to a lot of folks who don’t support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can’t say anything,” Boykin said.

As a consequence, he said, the lower grades therefore have decided to leave, having been given the signal that there is no future in the military for them.

Boykin referred to recent reports that Obama has purged some 197 officers in the past five years.

These reports suggest these officers were suspected of disloyalty or disagreed with the Obama administration on policy or force-structure issues. As Boykin pointed out, a number of them have been relieved of duty for no given reason.

“Morale is at an unprecedented low,” Boykin said, part of which is due to sequestration.

Sequestration has seriously cut back operational readiness for the military to the point where Boykin said that often they have no ammunition and are unable to conduct training because of the planned cuts.

“These officers want to train for war but are not be allowed to” because of the preoccupation not only with sequestration, but what Boykin said were other concerns surfacing in the military under Obama as commander-in-chief.

He referred specifically to the recent repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which now allows openly homosexual personnel in the military. In addition, he said the integration of women into the infantry “will reduce readiness of units.” He also was critical of the rules of engagement which he says favor “political correctness over our ability to fight to win.”

“The last time we won an all-out war was in 1944,” Boykin said. “Now, we don’t have the will to win.”

Brady, who was a legendary “Dust Off” air ambulance pilot in Vietnam and detailed his experiences in his book, “Dead Men Flying: Victory in Viet Nam,” said, “The problem is military people will seldom, while on duty, go on the record over such issues, and many will not ever, no matter how true.
“I hear from many off the record who are upset with the current military leadership and some are leaving and have left in the past,” he said.

Brady referred to additional problems in today’s military including “girly-men leadership [and] medals for not shooting and operating a computer. This president will never fight if there is any reason to avoid it and with a helpless military he can just point to our weakness and shrug his shoulders.”

Brady made similar references in a recent article he wrote for WND in which he said “just when you thought the leadership of this government could not get any worse, it does. Never in history has an administration spawned another scandal to cover the current one.”

The reference was to the recent firing of a number of generals to mask “Obama’s serial scandals, all prefaced by lies – Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA, IRS” among others.

WND reported that three of the nine firings by Obama this year alone were linked to the controversy surrounding the Sep. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the CIA special mission in Benghazi, Libya.

In one case, U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham, who commanded U.S. African Command when the consulate was attacked and four Americans were killed, was highly critical of the decision by the State Department not to send in reinforcements.

Obama has insisted there were no reinforcements available that night.

But Ham contends reinforcements could have been sent in time, and he said he never was given a stand-down order. However, others contend that he was given the order but defied it. He ultimately was relieved of his command and retired.

Now, new information in the Washington Times reveals there were Delta Force personnel in Tripoli at the time of the attack and two members volunteered to be dispatched to Benghazi to assist in protecting the Benghazi compound, contrary to stand-down orders from the State Department.

Another flag officer involved in the Benghazi matter – which remains under congressional investigation – was Rear Adm. Charles Gaouette. He commanded the Carrier Strike Group.

He contends aircraft could have been sent to Libya in time to help the Americans under fire. He later was removed from his post for alleged profanity and making “racially insensitive comments.”

Army Major Gen. Ralph Baker was the commander of the Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa at Camp Lemonier in Djibouti, Africa. Baker contended that attack helicopters could have reached the consulate in time on the night of the attack.

“To understand the insufferable assaults on our military and veterans, who should be exempt from political squabbles but are often at the forefront of Obama threats, we need to understand the psyche of the elite in this country led by Obama,” Brady said.

“It is no accident that the president used the Obama sequester and shutdown to punish the military family,” he said. “It is part of his DNA. In fact it is in the psyche of the entire liberal/progressive establishment – the elite. President Clinton outed himself and this ilk when he declared his loathing of the military. Who could believe progressives/liberals care about veterans and military?”

Brady said that some people who fear for the future of the United States believe it needs to be “re-moralized.”

“We cannot survive without increasing patriotism, a youth schooled in the Constitution,” Brady said. “If the uncommon common American is to prevail against the elite, we need to return to the truths of our Constitution.

“We need to realize that this recent assault on the military and veterans is no accident,” Brady added. “It is purposeful. The elite loathe our military, the one sure guarantor of our freedom. These elite – not a shutdown or default – and their assault on the Constitution and our military are the real threat to our future.”

Army Major Gen. Paul E. Vallely similarly has been very vocal in his opposition to the Obama administration.

Vallely said the White House won’t investigate its own officials but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”

“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into Fast and Furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

Vallely served in the Vietnam War and retired in 1993 as deputy Commanding General, Pacific Command. Today, he is chairman of the Military Committee for the Center for Security Policy and is co-author of the book “Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror.”

Duty personnel seem to back up this concern, suggesting that the firings are meant to send a message to “young officers down through the ranks” not to criticize the president or White House politics. Read more via WND...
